Alexis has a passion for empowering leaders to create high-performing teams and cultures that push everyone to the top of their game—where roles and personalities complement one another, and the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. It was this passion that led her to the Predictive Index (PI) in 2012. Employing Talent Optimization's objective data-driven metrics, Alexis guides the implementation of an effective and intentional People Strategy that fits 'hand-in-glove' with an organization's business strategy to drive bottom-line results.
Alexis honed her leadership and people management skills at Rutgers University Newark as the First Assistant Head Coach for the Women's Soccer Team, and also as a Youth Travel Team Head Coach. Her primary coaching focus was to instill a strong teamwork ethic and view losses as opportunities for growth, both individually and as a team.

Alexis uses the same approach with her clients by helping them optimize their talent and evolve with the ever-changing business challenges they may face.
